Summer - Little Pine State Park juvenile eagles have a bright future

Soaring at the Little Pine Dam area, the fledgling juvenile eagles have a bright future for themselves. All are healthy and very active as they are learning to hunt and fish.
I have been following these beautiful eagles since March, 2018
The Red Wing Blackbirds have been giving the juveniles fits as they chase the eagles away from their domain.

Spring - Learning to fly on the second day after fledging

Little Pine: Hard to believe that this juvenile is less than three months old!

Spring - One of the Little Pine State Park Eaglets has Fledged

EAGLE FLEDGED: Little Pine State Park was abuzz this morning as one of the eaglets fledged. We call the threesome Moe, Larry and Curly and Moe was hopping from limb to limb, fighting off same attacking birds and coming back to the nest as Momma brought back breakfast. I have never seen anything so rewarding in nature as I have been following these three eaglets since they were born on March 26th.

Spring - My first photo of this majestic bird.

This is the first "Golden Eagle" that I have ever photographed. Exciting seeing it when I got home. At first I thought it was a juvenile eagle, but it matches the looks of a golden eagle. I don't think it is a mature Golden Eagle yet.

The Little Pine pair of eagles were swarming and nervous when this eagle showed up this morning. They stayed close to their nest protecting their eaglets.

The two eagles just watched as the Golden Eagle moved out of the area downstream from the nest.
